One-on-One: Who will win the NBA finals?

Miami Heat

This one-on-one goes in the “duh” category. You would have to be out of your mind to answer this question in any other way.

Who’s going to win the NBA Title?

I’ll give you a hint. They have the best player in the world. They are clearly the best team in the NBA, and everyone hates them for no real reason, other than the fact that they are so good.

You guessed it, the Indiana Pacers.

Just kidding. The Miami Heat are going to win the championship this year with ease. No one in the East can come close to challenging them and, with Russell Westbook done for the year, out West there’s no competition in the Heat’s way.

Get ready for the parade in South Beach. Get ready for the Mothership, aka ESPN, to have a Miami love fest.

LeBron is going to get his second ring, and he’ll inevitably be in a million more annoying commercials this summer.

The only hope to knock off the Heat is the San Antonio Spurs. As much as I’d love to see it happen, it won’t. The Spurs are too old and don’t have the athleticism to matchup with Miami. My guess is a Spurs versus Heat NBA finals would be over in five games.

So you’ve been warned Heat haters. They’re getting another title this year.

Miami Heat

The Miami Heat are going to win the NBA Championship again this season.

There is no team that can compete with the defending champions, especially in the Eastern Conference. There should be no competition until the NBA Finals.

The Indiana Pacers or New York Knicks may be able to push Miami to six or seven games, but there’s no chance they can beat them.

The Western Conference probably won’t fair much better against the Heat. With Russell Westbrook out for the Oklahoma City Thunder, they can’t beat the Heat. The San Antonio Spurs probably have the best shot, but they are old and can’t physically matchup with a younger team like Miami.

When you have LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh it makes things easy for Heat coach Eric Spoelstra. Those guys are three of the top 20 players in the entire world.

In the end, the Heat are just unstoppable. They have too many weapons and the addition of Ray Allen has given the team another lights out shooter to go with James and Wade who can get to the basket with ease.

It pains me to say it, but the Miami Heat are going to win the NBA Championship again this season.
